UPGEN 716 is the UPGG student seminar course.  Every other Friday two UPGG students  present their current research in the form of  30 min seminars.  All second year students are required to present and the remaining presentation slots are filled with senior UPGG  students.    While attendance is mandatory for first and second year UPGG students, more senior students and participating UPGG faculty are also encouraged to attend the presentations.  This is an excellent forum for students to hone their presentation skills and hear about the latest research from their peers.
